Sweat In Style


New year, new you workout gear. If you’re human, you probably made a resolution, promise to yourself, deal with the devil ( whatever you want to call it ) to eat right and work out this year… am I right? I explained here why I’m not into resolutions, however, I am into taking care of yourself and your bod… soooooo… I say start where all good things do, in your closet.

If you look the part, you’re going to act the part. I may be fashion obsessed, but I probably spend 80% of my life in workout wear. Why? Because a ) it’s comfy, b ) it can be cute, and c ) wear it = do it. Simple as that. Here are some of my favorite pieces to inspire a good old sweat sesh.


+ [ VSX Sports Bra ] $50 : When it comes to bras, Victoria’s Secret obviously knows what’s up. This is one of my faves. Cute, comfy, and super supportive.

+ [ Beats by Dre Studio Headphones ] $299 : I absolutely cannot work out with earbuds. Sry. Hate it. IDK why. I’m all about big old headphones… the bigger, the better. Bonus… they keep your ears warm when you’re running out in the cold.

+ [ VS Pink Hoodie ] $33 : Gotta keep those muscles nice and warm post workout. VS hoodies are just the softest, hands down. Plus they’re light weight and the bright colors are super motivating :)

+ [ LuLu Lemon Happy Hatha Hour Bag ] $118 :  The key to actually going to the gym is preparation. Pull a Mary Poppins and keep your bag packed up with everything you could possibly need including your workout gear, toiletries, makeup bag, a little protein packed snack, whatever gets you through the day and to the gym.

+ [ Nike Free Tr 4 ] $140 : I LOVE Nike Frees. They are sooooo comfy, lightweight, and prob the best looking sneak out there IMHO.

+ [ Tye Dye Twistbands ] $27 : There is nothing worse than having a face full of hair when you’re trying to perfect your downward dog. Tie it up with a Twistband. Functional & fashionable.

+ [ Life Factory Water Bottle ] $23 : I literally don’t leave home without my Life Factory water bottle. Cute, cool, and BPA free.

+ [ VS Pink Ponte Leggings ] $30 : Finding a good pair of leggings is like finding a needle in a freaking haystack. Nothing worse than finishing up a good stretch sesh to find your too thin leggings are just a little on the see through side. #oops. These bad boys are, not too thin, not too thick, just right.

+ [ Nope Muscle Tee ] $14 : I like to keep it fresh in a good old muscle tee. Keeps you cool and covered up all in one.


If You’re Going To San Francisco…

I know I’ve been a little off the grid as of late… I’m still trying to play catch up after my mini vacay to my favorite city by the bay. I think it’s really important to get away every now and then, to unwind, escape the nuances of everyday life, and reassess what’s really important. Here are some photo highlights of the trip…

and we're off

Annnd we’re off… Frida and I en route to SF!


I was sick the entire trip… as in no voice sick, but I didn’t let it get me down. Alternate forms of communication + sippin’ on some sizzurp.


Nothing s’mores and whiskey by the fire can’t cure.

Oh… and wine tasting in Carmel. Wine on wine on wine. Love the modern decor.

The whole town of Carmel is so dog friendly… even the wineries :) it’s a dog’s life.


A beautiful statue of the Immaculate heart of Mary.

Morning hike at Carmel Valley Ranch. The perfect way to start the day.

Tella turns 3!! The birthday girl celebrating in mid-air. This is what happiness looks like.


Haight // Ashbury

Love this mural // Trying to speak to my unborn nephew… Hi baby Lucho! Auntie Kika can’t wait to meet you!!

unlucky 27.jpg

Some cool sidewalk art // groovy Ashbury sign // Unlucky # 27… a tribute to Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and other musicians who lost their lives at the tender age of 27. Tragic and beautiful.

shopping success.jpg

A successful day of shopping on Haight. Got to feed my obsession at the Kidrobot store + picked up some cool new kicks at True SF.

until next time

The trip home is never as much fun… Frida agrees. Until next time SF. Xx.



TGIF: Garden Style.

Kikadoo Secret Garden Collage 1

Happy Friday!! I had a super productive week and am beyond ready for the weekend. While “running errands” aka shopping with my girl Erica [of Fashionlushxx fame] we came across this enchanting flower shop / secret garden. Though it was closed, it was begging to be explored. Naturally, we saw this as the perfect opportunity for a photo shoot.

What to Wear Wednesdays: Lite Brite

neon highlighters

It has been crazy cold lately [I’m talking 40 degrees in San Diego kind of cold]… so why not turn up the heat by adding a pop of neon to your drab winter wardrobe?!? Neon was huge in Summer ’12 and it looks like it’s going to be even bigger in twenty-thirteen! I’m stoked because I am a big fan of the neon trend. It’s the perfect way to spice up my almost all black wardrobe. My fave way to incorporate neon at the moment is via my workout gear. Having cute gym clothes gets me extra motivated and wearing bright colors while I get my workout on makes me feel energetic and alive!
